't help if you caricature. the fiscal cliff a deal/deal and joe biden. we got less than we wanted. i would have liked to have based taxes on people making $300,000 a year. but we had 85 republicans for that. on the hurricane, that was a very bipartisan deal in the senate and the notion that we were going to peel off a few, that shouldn't be partisan at all. after spending, i agree. here's the problem. the biggest increase in spending in the last, in this century has been a military spending. unpaid for in iraq, an unnecessary war. afghanistan, military spending else where. i very much want to cut spending but people who want to exempt the military from spending cuts. >> you have to have the last word on that. >> every penny to the pentagon and every penny the government spends, we still borrow $300 billion a year and his party has to come to grips with that. >> gentlemen, as you step aside, we might see you temporarily in the united states senate and see how that plays out in massachusetts. hopefully, hopefully in the spirit -- >> senator frank, that would be kind of interesting for a few

friend, vice president joe biden. throughout his career as a public servant, vice president biden has championed issues that are critical to the prosperity and growth of america's cities, and he has engaged directly with the u.s. conference of mayors on a regular basis. during our annual meeting this past june in orlando, vice president biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. whenever there's a major issue that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see al

that the deal got done by the way, was that the president basically bowed out and joe biden bowed in. should we look for mr. biden once again to play the role of the ultimate negotiator mediator here. >> yes, i think we will. see joe biden involved in that. but the real hammer the president had in those discussions was not joe biden. it was the fact, tyler, that the tax increases were scheduled to expire on december 31st. we were looking a the a very large tax increase. the president accepted less than half of the revenue goals that he had been seeking as a resolution of that problem. so what is his leverage going to be here? he's trying to say, you make into leverage the fact that the accusing house republicans of taking the economy, hurting medicare and social secure fit they don't raise the debt limit. but the way out for these two sides is not immediately obvious right now. >> john harwood, thank you very much. >> as you know, whenever you talk money in washington, taxes comes part of the equation. the t word has become very real and very ugly from coast to coast after millions of americans

and that because of joe biden, because of michael bloomberg, because of former congressman gabrielle giffords that there is a possibility of doing something now or is it simply the possibility of beginning the conversation? >> the it seems like it was the beginning of a conversation that would end in failure even two, three weeks back. if you talked to people that were inside the white house and working with joe biden i don't think there was a lot of hope that they thought they could ever get through an assault weapon ban in the house and the senate. for actually, though, it's not been michael bloomberg's actions over the past several weeks or gabrielle giffords or joe biden's that i think has made the biggest difference. i think the reason why the political landscape is moving as quickly as it is on this issue and why the polls are moving is because the abhorrent behavior of the national rifle association and their reaction not only to newtown but wayne lapierre's press conference, the news of the past few days of a commercial that actually talked about the president's own children and takes
